Very interesting museum showing trash carpets

The carpets tells stories about the lives of the people, who made them. We were lucky that the owner found time to tell us the stories.

Off the beaten track, this little museum (formaly a riad) is a wonderful place to visit. The owner explaining the meaning of the colours and the art involved in the making of the exhibits has given me a new insight. Beautifully presented with a great roof terrace. The staff were helpful and made the visit exceptional Go if you can... More

We loved this place as a contrast to the madness of the city outside. There is a really infesting exhibition in the customs of carpet making and it makes a great break from the hustle and bustle. Lovely roof terrace to sit and enjoy a tea and juice. Not an easy place to find so get your bearings for a... More

A friend and I found this place while wondering around the medina. Although the visit wasn't planned we had a very good time. It was our first time being introduced to this type of artwork and we had an enjoyable time looking at each one and the background of how the carpets were made. The museum also has a small... More

Went here yesterday with my girlfriend and we were very impressed. Quite hard to find if you don't know your way around the souks and don't be discouraged if you see the sign for it and the path your on appears to be going nowhere just keep going and don't ask to be guided by some of the young lads...

We met the owner and curator ( Patrick )..........it's a fantastic experience in a beautiful Riad which is worth seeing regardless of what is on display. The roof terrace is to die for. Patrick's explanations of the hidden meanings behind these carpets is very interesting and a real insight into the life of the people who made these. You may... More

Such a beautiful gallery. Peaceful and quiet with a very interesting collection of rugs and the stories behind them. Very moving. You can reuse your ticket on another day, once you have a ticket you can go back anytime. A peaceful respite from the madness of the medina. A very thoughtful, serene and moving place.
